It is with regret that I announce the resignation of Honourable Kumbirai Hodzi, as Prosecutor General. His resignation has come about due to ill health requiring medical attention. In the light of this, His Excellency the President, Dr ED Mnangagwa has accepted the resignation. His Excellency is ready to redeploy Hon Hodzi elsewhere in the Service as soon as his health rallies back.

On behalf of His Excellency the President, the Office of the President and Cabinet, and indeed on my behalf, I wish Honourable Hodzi speedy recovery.
